Bookmobile ready to roll in Manchester

New for the 2018 Booked for Summer literacy initiative, the Manchester School District, in partnership with the Manchester City Library, will run a bookmobile that will stop at several city locations in July and August. The refurbished van was generously donated by Granite State Plumbing & Heating and wrapped by Sousa Signs. 

The bookmobile will stop at city parks, pools and schools. The five-week schedule will run two sessions every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from July 9 to August 10. Regular stops include Livingston Park, Beech Street School, YMCA of Downtown Manchester, Steven’s Park at Manchester Cal Ripken field, Elmwood Gardens, and Kelley Falls.

The bookmobile will be staffed by MSD educators, city librarians and other community leaders and volunteers. The team will organize read-a-louds and activities for each session. Unlike traditional bookmobiles, ours is not a lending library. Every child who visits may choose one book to take home and keep. They can bring books back to swap for something new, but that is not required. All Manchester children are welcome to visit any stop on any day as many times as they wish.

“We are very excited to add this opportunity for kids to our summer program because it’s such a natural fit for the district,” said Wendy Perron, director of English learner instruction, who was able to secure the van and coordinate the bookmobile planning committee. “There has been a lot of enthusiastic feedback just talking about the concept because it brings back great memories to those of us who remember bookmobiles from our own childhoods.”
Watch this space in August for the 2018/19 school year schedule of informal round table discussions with Dr. Vargas!
